Is It Really THAT Big??

Everywhere we go, we always hear people saying this about Ben:
* Oh wow! Look at his BIG eyes!
* The pupil so BIG!
* Wah! See his BIG eyes!
* Big eyes like his mummy!

Just the other day when we were out at a mall, I was queuing up to pay the parking ticket and hubby was in the mall holding Ben. When I returned back to them, there are 2 Chinese guys (around early 20s) who are staff at one of the shop there just playing and gazing at Ben and keep saying in Mandarin (which hubby and I understood some) that Ben's eyes are really BIG and cute.

I mean, come on... Is it really THAT big?

Just take a look at this picture of Ben and tell me the truth... is his eyes really THAT big? I'm not kidding you. And I'm not trying to fish any compliments or anything.

Maybe its because I'm at home with Ben everyday all the time that I don't realized or noticed any difference with his eye size... Or maybe its because I have big eyes too that I don't realized Ben's eyes are big as well...

But I honestly really don't think his eyes are THAT big. OK, maybe its a bit bigger than normal babies I see when we're out during family outing but, seriously, there are times when people just stopped and looked and walked on and seconds later still glanced back to look at Ben! There are few times when people actually stopped and gaped at Ben...

Now, take a look at this picture of me and Ben...

On the left is me, at 6 months old... I was just learning to sit up straight then. Now, on the right is Ben at 7 months old, also has mastered the sitting up straight milestone by this age.

I don't know... but I get a lot of ppl telling me that he has my eyes and because of that, (I think) Ben has inherited my crying ability as well. It's kinda like a superhero power - which seriously, should not be abused cos' our crying ability is really scary. We cry on demand, no reason or tools required, just a little bit of tears and you'll see its as if flood gates have opened.

But, seriously... back to the topic of Ben's eyes...
Is it really THAT big?
Hearing all this 'big eyes' statements kinda make me feel like a weirdo mum...

I personally do not think his eyes are that big. Maybe the people on the street are taking double takes because he is adorable:)

I think people mean it as a compliment. His eyes are perfect not too big, not too small- just perfect for his beautiful face.
